Traditionally, taxa included here in Gnaphalieae have been treated in Inuleae within

   Gnaphaliinae (cf. A. A. Anderberg 1991; K. Bremer 1994). Gnaphalieae include everlastings and
   helichrysums, which have brightly colored, persistent phyllaries and are much used in dried
   floral arangements, and other ornamentals, e.g., species or cultivars from Anaphalis,
   Antennaria, and Leontopodium (edelweiss). Some species of Facelis, Gamochaeta, Gnaphalium,
   Helichrysum, and Pseudognaphalium are widespread as weeds.
